Why the Vulcain Nautical will appeal to divers

First published: 10-06-2011

Those who enjoy the pursuit of venturing the ocean's depths may want to check out the Vulcain Nautical watch.

Given a rating of 69 out of 100 by Watch Observer, the timepiece could prove a vital accessory to have in possession when under the sea.

One of the main reasons for this is the fact that this particular diver watch comes complete with an alarm, which goes off when oxygen reserves are running low.

"The technical challenge for this feat was enormous: come up with a watch that was both water-resistant and at the same time fitted with an audible underwater alarm," a reviewer at Watch Observer acknowledged.

Other features of the Vulcain Nautical which could convince people to make a purchase include a bulky 42mm diameter case, so that the dial can be read with ease, as well as a sleek steel case.

Another timepiece that divers should check out is the Hublot King Power 48 mm Oceanographic 4000, which has an impressive water resistance of 4,000m.
